Sunday Gratitude no.8

5 THINGS I'M GRATEFUL FOR TODAY

1. Our current little home that we love and adore. It has been so so so so good to us, and it's walls are full of so much love and so many memories. When we bought this home, we imagined living here for 5-7 years. We just hit the 4 year mark, and we expected to be here for at least 2 more years before moving on. But then, without even realizing it, we stumbled upon the the most perfect little house, on the most perfect little lot, next to the most perfect little park...and somehow, we put our name on it and it is ours. Well...almost ours. Which brings me to:

on my heart

I don't know what I'm about to say right now. I just found myself here, and my heart feels all kinds of swirly with feelings and convictions and hope and determination.

The last 2 years have been like, majorly transformative for me. Which isn't to say they were hard, necessarily...although at times, definitely. Just very transformitive. Which, I feel the need to add: it didn't just happen. I definitely initiated that transformation, albeit a bit ignorant of the can of worms I was opening. Phew man, it's been two years of stretching and growing and deep breaths and confusion and trial-and-error and so much determination. And also, so so much pride and love for myself.

The questions: Who the hell am I? and Who the hell do I want to be? pretty much sum it all up. For some reason, the hell is an important component in those questions, possibly because it emphasizes the desperation behind them. Like, I've got to figure this out. Which is not to say that I haven't answered those questions multiple times in the past, but as an ever evolving human (and wife and mother and friend and spirit), I'm of the upmost certainty that these questions will reappear periodically forever and ever.

don't forget

every morning the kiddos have granola for breakfast.

rae pronounces it: "ga-nola"
and johnny pronounces it" "ga-no-rah"

and i refuse to correct them.

sunday gratitude no.7

five things i'm grateful for today

1. the weather! Summer is officially OVER and I am thrillllllled about it! Honestly, the end of the summer can get a little depressing (similar to a dragging on winter), and we were really feeling it. But finally it's cooled down, and my gosh, those windows open, scooter-walks, picnic breakfasts, jumping on the trampoline, exercising outside, and grilled dinners. It brings me insane amounts of happiness! Last night we had a bonfire with friends, where we chatted and roasted s'mores. It was absolutely lovely!
